  1. I've only heard the first half of this episode so far, but so far the music is AMAZING! You both picked a lot of top-notch tracks for this episode.

    I had an idea: are there any games that you've played every single eligible track on the soundtrack on LMH? If so, you should retire games, like sports teams retire numbers of their best players. So, if you play all of the tracks on, say, Road Rash, you could retire it - maybe just announce it is retired on the show, or maybe keep a list on the website.

  2. There should be no surprise that I love F1 Circus MD so much.

  3. Brent, saw you on last weeks "The Middle" and you did a great job! You got pretty good screen time too. Listeners, if your cable company offers a "on demand" service, please check out Brent.

  4. Taito Grand Prix - Name Entry
    you know its true

    I wasn't there wasn't there when you said when you said I said goodbye to mama ma.
    He was the right guy.
    Mama said that was true.
    He wasn't joining the circus.

    Rubber man is true.
    Cos of what you've done
    And the righteous in love are we.
    I wasn't done hoom doom datta datta (skat improv 1)

    He wasn't joining the circus.

    Rubber man has changed.
    And you broke my heart.
    Cos we've got to make our way.
    Unless we datta doo doo datta (skat improv 2)

  5. HEY!!! Way late on this, finally listened up to date, but HUGE mistake on this episode. The track from "Nigel Mansell's" is NOT from Nigel Mansell etc. It is my favorite Genesis track ever, which I have suggested to the Boiz via email. It is from Lotus 2: RECS. It is BGM 2. I know because I played it endlessly as a kid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tvbk5xDswAM&list=PLFSHdeZ6gP01mabCz7bZZn4GabI2z_Iq0&index=5

    I think as pennance, in lieu of timelord, the next episode (203) should feature the main title theme from Lotus 2: RECS, which can be found here:

    P.S.: The phone message I left was doubly erroneous. The best episode ever is 190: Jokes. Easily.

    P.S.S.: Not intending to sound dickish. LMH is life.
